It is quite clear that #45 has upped the ante with China, no doubt thinking it will go down well with the 'basket of deplorables' as Hillary Clinton described them. That did her no favours at all, no matter whether true or not. You only have to hear Trump bang on about 'The China Virus' to know what he is up to.
I do not know why China is so cross with Australia, and if it trying to be well thought of by Australians, it is failing completely with bans on importing some of our products, ceasing government to government contact, booting out two respected Australian journalists, leaving us with no media within the country at all to report from China. If it is about Australia banning Huawei from supplying our 5G network because of the possibility of spyware being installed, it seems an overreaction.
Another Chinese Australian journalist who is a presenter on Chinese tv has been detained for some time and it is not known where.
All very odd. It is like anti public relations by China. The Chinese government wants we in Australia to dislike it?
With China having the best media monitors in the world, I suggest you refrain from a negative comment about China if you intend travelling there or to or via Hong Kong...…..and maybe even Taiwan. I certainly won't be going to either place. Good public relations China? I think not.
